Also I can't see someone with the commanding presence and gravitas of Elba taking orders from Cavill's Superman. It would be strange.

It's called acting if the script calls for it he'd do it.

Didn't someone say that Elba wants to play GL? If WB could swing that they should take it. I don't care if they are promoting Hal. That would be a major coup for the JL to get an actor of his caliber. He also has very devoted fan base. He'd be a good choice in my book.

Yeah he posted on his twitter that he wants to do it.

No need to be condescending.

Acting is what I'm taking about. Elba's got a far stronger screen presence than Cavill.

He may be better suited for a mentor-type, like Martian Manhunter.

That is, of course, if he isn't still involved with Marvel.

You're telling me stuff I'm already aware of. Go to the Green Lantern thread in the DC Comics Films section and you'll see i've discussed this extensively.

I used to feel the same way as you. But the JL needs diversity.

It could go either way though, we really don't know. But I think DC should focus on arguably their best black hero

Sounds like a winner to me. Please let me see a tease of him in MOS2w/Batman. He could be in the military working under Swanick or be a replacement for Hardy.

C'mon WB make this happen.

Absolutely. It has to have some diversity. That's why I think Stewart is a good choice for GL instead of the others. I know some have mentioned Cyborg, but well...I'd rather see Irons then him.

edit:

I know he's not core but it's brave new world.

I think they should really get the Hal Jordan character right first, instead of sweeping him under the rug.

Audiences need to see that this is a completely new take on Hal/GL not tied to the previous film. A new Hal means a clean break from GL 2011.


I'm all for diversity. Have Martian Manhunter be played by a black actor. I wouldn't even mind if they somehow wrote General Swanwick to be MM. Write that he's been living on Earth as a human for decades, and that he repressed his alien side. Superman inspires him to become MM again.

Something just rings about it doesn't it. Quick question for you Fallen. Someone mentioned there's an easter egg in MOS with some dude eating an Oreo. Did you see that? I have watched this movie over and over and I can't find it. It's bugging me.

Nah I didn't spot that but that would be a Martian Manhunter shout out.

Yeah man...that's the rumor, but I have not been able to find it. I'm starting to doubt it's even in there.

I like hal a lot better than John. And I'd prefer he have his own movie. But a solution could be John Stewart being in JL, and Hal and John being the leads for a GL movie

I don't even remember GL anymore. It just didn't stick with me. For those who do remember is there anyway to link MOS and GL together so they could bring back Reynolds? I don't think so, but again I don't remember the movie well enough.

Perhaps.

I'm a fan of Elba. He would definitely add something great to the team. He would be ideal if JL was ready to go right now.

He'll probably be close to 50 by the time we finally get JL, but he fits into the age range of Adams and Affleck, and hopefully whoever they cast as Lex.

Not sure if we'll ever get spinoffs though. WB would have to feel really confident in the property again. It would take a lot. GL 2011 was a complete disaster with no redeeming qualities.

No there was Amanda Waller though so a Easter egg to a wider DC universe with Checkmate/Suicide Squad but nothing to link with MOS.

Waller was one of the main characters. She's in several scenes.

LOL...I must have been focusing on Cavill too much....LOL. Who is she in the movie?

edit:

OMG...I have to watch this movie with my fan girl off because I keep missing stuff...lol

I don't follow that logic. At all.

You're saying that if two people have issues with something, there's inherently a problem with the film? It couldn't just be two silly people?

Waller was in GL, not MOS. The films aren't connected.

Thank you! I thought I had lost my mind, which wouldn't have surprised me.

Hmm...maybe WB doesn't have to junk GL. Maybe it's possible that they could connect them. I doubt it, but if they could then I wouldn't mind. The movie wasn't great, but I don't think it was as terrible as some people want to make it out to be.

Meh...I just think it would be an easy way to skip another origin story for GL. Not that I don't want Stewart, but it makes sense.
